So my vet said Matilda could be spayed in 4 weeks, however the baby is only 3 days old, surly it should be longer than this, or is it okay to get her spayed then? x

I would have said in 12 weeks at least. It is best to wait until the milk dries up and she has had a few weeks rest after raising the baby to make sure she is fit and healthy for the op.

i'd get smartie done first as he is fit and healthy to go.

then in a few months do matilda, then that should give you time to save for the baby doing if you are keeping him/her and wait until it's old enough... is that what you meant? :?

Tink was done about 10-12 weeks after having her babies. I personally wouldn't want to put a doe through a spay any sooner than that.

In normal circumstances the babies would leave mum at about 8 weeks, then give her a couple of weeks rest and then she should be ready.
